Lawyer K. Shanmuga looks at how two recent court rulings affect media freedom in Malaysia. The first one - Pahang Menteri Besar vs. Utusan Melayu - prohibits public officials from suing reporters for defamation, and the other - a Federal Court decision - allows journalists to protect sources by keeping their identities confidential.
